I just bought that case and I also bought at AMD X2 4400+ with the Brisbane
core. The Brisbane's run much cooler, and it is not that expensive... I
really recommend the case!
I have two AverMedia 179's that I barely fit into the case, but it worked
out fine, so I can watch and record SD at the same time. Those are pretty
huge PCI cards, so I would assume the PVR-150 would fit into the case... I
also use it to watch HD recorded from a HDHomeRun in my closet (those things
are cool). I can record on all four tuners at once and watch HD at the same
time without any problems, and I'm only using an ATA100 IDE hard drive,
